Ind. Gov't. - Munster passes human rights ordinance

From the April 25th NWI Times:

The new ordinance, modeled on a similar law passed in Carmel, Indiana, prohibits discrimination against anyone on the basis of race, sexual orientation, disability or gender identity, making it illegal to obstruct someone from entering a business, entering into a contract, obtaining and maintaining employment or participating in any type of program or service available to the general public based on the classifications cited. Religious worship, clergy while engaged in religious activities, nonprofit clubs organized exclusively for religious purposes and private gatherings not open to the public would be excluded from the ordinance.
